Root: The RPG (Joie Martin – January 26 Two-Shot)
Two houses alike in dignity, those of Lord Cymria of the Marquisate and Lady Besric (formerly of the Eyrie) have gathered to join their son and daughter in holy matrimony. You’re part of a mercenary troupe tasked with keeping the bride, Eloise, safe until she and her groom are pronounced husband and wife. Those who oppose this union lurk in every shadow and Eloise seems to be harboring a few secrets of her own. Will the couple share a first dance and seal the alliance between their families, or will one of them be walking down the aisle alone?
In Root, you play vagabonds, outcasts from the normal society of the woodlands who have come to live in the spaces between, whether that’s in the forests themselves or on the fringes of society. You are competent and skilled—you have to be to survive as vagabonds—and you aren’t tied down to any particular place or faction.
You might be a badger arbiter, serving many sides in resolving conflicts and defending their interests. You might be a cat scoundrel, sliding on your mask before you sneak out into the darkness to cause mischief and mayhem. You might be a wolf ranger, at home in the wilds and the untamed places of the woodland.
